Do any of you have a link to a good howto on setting up Hyper-V on Windows 8 Pro machines? I have a Windows 98 .vmc from Virtual PC and it's got Starship Titanic (old Douglas Adams game), which I don't want to live without.

I'm running Windows 8 Pro on this setup:

Core i5 3570K
8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3
Gigabyte Z77-DS3H
GeForce GTX 550 Ti (EVGA)


Any helpful hints appreciated. There was a utility for turning .vmc files into the format Hyper-V wants, but it appears to be from 2011 and it didn't work with Windows 8 Pro GA.

So far, I was able to follow the above advice, and find TenSeldamUtility2009_03.exe, which, when installed, can convert the Virtual PC 2005 and 2007 .vmc to a virtual machine that works with Hyper-V. But the virtual machine fails on boot, so I'm digging out the old Windows 98SE .iso, and trying to create the VM that way.

Thanks for your help!
